Appel Law Firm

The APPEL LAW FIRM is an international trade and customs law firm concentrating on Customs and international trade related issues.  We assist our clients in navigating the complex international trade laws and to comply with U.S. Customs and federal regulations.

While importers tend to seek counsel once an issue has arisen, the firm works with clients in a proactive manner to creatively structure their transactions in ways that minimize problems from arising in the first instance.   With foresight and planning, we can reduce duties and provide certainty, leading to greater profits, lower liabilities, the safeguarding of good-will and a competitive advantage. 

With experience gained in representing a diverse client base and the recovery of millions of dollars from Customs, the firm represents its clients before the U.S. Customs and Bureau Protection, the U.S. Court of International Trade, and various other federal agencies.  The firm assists clients with the intricacies of various special duty programs and free trade agreements, and represents importers in planning and surviving Customs audits.  Finally, we work with clients in developing and documenting proper compliance programs and internal control procedures.

Above all, the firm provides each client with personal service in a cost-effective manner to help it navigate the complexities of the ever-changing business environment.
